Both Mohammad Rizwan and BJ Watling will be good choices. Both come to bat in middle order. However, after looking at Rizwan’s last knock (105 not out), he seems to be a better pick.
In batting, Corey Anderson, Tom Blundell and Will Young will be the perfect picks from New Zealand. You can also pick Glen Phillips. Although he returned for a duck, Philips scored two back to back fifties in T20 series. From Pakistan, Abid Ali and Shan Maqsood will be good choices in the batsman.
In all-rounder, you can pick from Agha Salman, Iftikhar Ahmed, Aamer Yamin and Toss Astle. All the four are contributing well with both bat and ball. While Todd Astle bagged a wicket after scoring a fifty, Aamer Yamin took 3 wickets with an economy under four.
In bowlers, Rahat Ali, Lockie Ferguson and Logan van Beek will be good choices. Lockie Ferguson bagged four wickets in the last game and is looking in a good flow.
